was a speechwriter for ronald reagan. we have worked closely on a wide range of things. and i just told him, mr. speaker, since i'm leaving congress, he's taught me one thing and one thing only, and that is how to make margaritas. with that i'm happy to yield to my friend, mr. rohrabacher. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for three minutes. mr. rohrabacher: i rise in support of the rule and this legislation and note that the classified nature of that margarita formula should never be disclosed to an enemy of the united states, of course, but we will be glad to transmit that information to our colleagues on the other side of the aisle. in the spirit of bipartisanship. i do rise in support of this rule and h.r. 6156. the legislation to grant permanent normal trade relations status to russia. during the 19 0's as was just mentioned, i worked for ronald reagan in the white house and was part of a team dedicating itselves to bring down the soviet dictatorship. i might add that dave dryor was a member of that team. today's russia is not yesterday's soviet union. that's the most i
. >> the statistics that you can present to you is that when ronald reagan ran for reelection in 1984, similar situation come here to raise money for his primary and the party even though he took the public general election funding, he attended for fundraisers in that year. what are we doing where we have a president running around? as i recall, the nevada event that romney hit import into the rushing off after libya was a fundraiser. a fourth of his time in office is this election year and a spinning it at fundraisers. and romney is getting videotaped at his fundraisers talking about the 47% in a private, closed room with people, that's what they want to hear and that's who he is meeting with all the time. so this is a problem for i think both sides, and we're going to see that pressure, the money pressure in the house and senate races. >> we'll have a minute left but i would love to hear if there is action of some sort taken to compel disclosure or to higher degree of independence or whatever steps, measures you face. conjure a vision of the future two, three, four cycles down the road what
in this room. what is important is what you have on the table would make ronald reagan look like a piker. he knows how hard it was, with some very good people. [laughter] the point is, in the fiscal cliff, you will not get any of this done. joe lieberman outlined the potential of approach. some cutting, some modest revenue. then you move back to regular order, which trent lott was talking about last year. then you need a mechanism to enforce the discipline. my worry is, you read the washington post report and, frankly, the people doing the negotiations on both sides do not know the basics. starting with the fact that you need one piece of paper, not competing pieces of paper. i would be worried about -- if these people just talked to each other as opposed to negotiating and pontificating on their positions, the president will be very tempted to let the tax cuts expire, it is not sustainable because of the alternative minimum tax and other things. that is a gutsy, given the state of the economy, and people need to be prepared for it. >> let's talk about the rest of the world. we want to ask t
that have returned on the principles of ronald reagan and thatcher and president and the czech republic and the pro free enterprise and sovereignty simply to fight back against the european within the elements of central and eastern europe to push back so it is an array of hope you didn't use the word insidious. >> i'm waiting for you to bring about. >> the example of why it won't work is the european union. >> you can organize the countries in the same continent that are supposed to be the same civilization how are you going to reconcile the this civilizations that it shouldn't stand. and it gets to double down now. now we need them in charge of all of the banks. in charge of all economic policy all budget policies. this is what the leaders are saying. so even though it doesn't work and doesn't -- the soviet union didn't work from 1917 to 1971. >> would you comment on any connections that you see between the groups that appear to have less concern about protecting the national borders and issues of sovereignty clacks >> i'm not quite following what you mean. >> do you have any thoughts
lines, stagflation. in 1980, a different president got elected. ronald reagan, like barack obama, inherited a struggling economy. ronald reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite of barack obama. instead of checking up taxes, he cut taxes. instead of exploding spending and the death, he restrained growth and spending. instead of -- debt, he restrained growth and spending. instead of releasing the hounds of regulators on small businesses and rescue -- entrepreneurs, reagan limited regulation. the result was one of the strongest person of economic activity our nation has ever seen. the fourth year of reagan's presidency was 1984, precisely corresponding to right now in obama's presidency. does anyone know what gdp was then? 7.2%. our ideas work. their ideas do not. if you want the 23 million people struggling finding work to get jobs, the answer is simple. you need growth. to get growth, you have got to reduce and simplify the tax burden, reduce regulations, and unchain small businesses and entrepreneurs. over six -- over 50% of americans who voted on election day believed t
is the payback from party leaders? guest: there is change and then there is change. tip o'neill and ronald reagan got together and saved the program. sometimes you need to adjust to change the thing you care most about. tip o'neill did not sell off the democratic party by embracing that. if we do it in a responsible way that doesn't gut the program, i think the base of the party will understand. the alternative is doing nothing with bad damage to the economy, or the right wing of the republicans coming in and taking over and their answer to the solution would be much more draconian. host: jack in kentucky. caller: i have one question. can you guarantee -- guest: i thought you're going to ask why indiana university and kentucky and not playing basketball this year. for the first time they are now playing and we are rivals. i cannot talk about classified information on tv. things like stinger missiles are very problematic and we do everything we can to keep track of them. muammar gaddafi stockpiles of weapons, surface- to-air missiles and we're doing everything to track those down and secure them.

[laughter] >> instead of releasing the hounds of regulators on small businesses and entrepreneurs, reagan limited regulation and the result was one of the most extraordinary bursts of economic productivity our nation has ever seen. the fourth year of reagan's presidency was 1984, the same as the fourth year of obama's presidency. anyone know what g.d.p. growth was in 1984, 7.2%. our ideas work. their ideas don't. if you want growth, if you want jobs. if you want the 23 million people struggling to find work to get jobs, the answer is simple. you need growth and to get growth, you got to reduce and simplify the tax bu
